Is it okay to mix subutex with oxycodone?

Is it okay to mix subutex with oxycodone?

NO: If you have an oxycodone habit - are physically dependent on the - and you take a Suboxone, you will experience withdrawal, which can be severe. If you are not, the Suboxone will pretty much completely block the effect of the oxycodone. If Suboxone is prescribed to you, your prescriber needs to educate you. If you are taking these without prescription, get some help with your drug problem. ...Read more

Is subutex stronger than oxycodone?

Not exactly: When it comes to opioids or narcotics it is the dose that determines strength when comparing medications. However, oxycodone is a direct agonist or stimulator of the receptor for opioids so it can be more potent but Suboxone tends to bind to the receptor with an affinity that is quite strong. ...Read more

Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take subutex without getting early withdrawal, its for chronic pain not addiction.

Yes, long enough.: Half life of oxycodone, how long it takes to clear half of oxycodone, is about 3.5 hours. It takes about 5 X 3.5 hours to clear most of dose. 12-15 hours clears about 80% of dose. Subutex should not cause withdrawal from oxycodone at 12-15 hours (since it partially blocks the opioid receptors), and it can actually block withdrawal if you are stopping oxycodone after chronic usage. ...Read more

I've been on subutex 8 mg 3x daily for 7 years now and I have to have a vigorous surgery in my sinuses and to my gums yet the surgeon is only saying he will write oxycodone 7.5/500 for after surgery.

So...: The pain meds your surgeon is willing to give you is quite adequate for almost every surgery that can be performed. That strength would knock me out. I don't prescribe that strength very often myself.
Unless you are a drug addict with a long history of such abuse...You should be just fine. And thank the doctor for watching out for your health, by not overprescribing. ...Read more
